In March-June 2020 I created a sketchbook full of art made from odds and ends I had saved. The book has no words, just pictures. I am showing you the whole book, two facing pages at a time. The book was finished in June. I made it to help myself feel better as I passed through the early days of the pandemic.
Here are the project’s specifics.The book is a mixed media sketchbook that’s 5.5″ x 7.5″. I used collage materials including magazine pages and scraps of my own discarded artworks, as well as acrylic paints and inks, India ink, and pens, regular brushes, and bamboo brushes.
Here are pages 4 and 5 as they appear in the book, and below in more detail.
Lovely stuff! The first one reminds me of stained glass.
Thank you. A layer of India Ink over a pre-printed background.
So much fun!
Thank you. I like working on a small book like this and seeing the images turn into an inpromptu story. Or not, as the case may be. It’s fun to just let yourself make images without expectations.
